DIY Christmas Projects
Whether you consider yourself an expert crafter or you are fairly new to the world of art and design, you will find the right Christmas project for you below. Plus, each one of these DIY Christmas gifts can be made using just a few materials and equipment that you can pick up in any craft store.
1. Christmas Knitted Stockings – Perfect for Kids & Grandkids
It wouldn’t be Christmas without the obligatory Christmas stockings hanging on the fireplace or shelves, so why not make this festive tradition even more special by knitting your own?
As knitting projects go, this one is fairly straightforward, although you will want to make sure that you use high-quality yarn that is soft to touch and luxurious to look at. You can find a wide variety of stocking patterns online, from simple designs for beginners to more intricate patterns for experienced knitters.
2. Festive Scented Candles – Perfect for Parents & In-laws
Who doesn’t love to light a candle at Christmas and especially one that smells just like the festive season does? Making your own candle is easy; all you need is some melting wax, a wick, a jar, and your chosen essential oils. Essential oils you may want to try include cinnamon, nutmeg, or frankincense.
3. Crochet Holiday Nose Warmers – Perfect for Little Ones
Do you love taking cheesy holiday photos of your family to commemorate another special year? Holiday crocheted nose-warmers are great for some fun Christmas pictures by the tree. Choose from a Rudolph-inspired red and brown warmer, or for those who love Frozen, opt for a bright orange nose like Olaf the snowman. Stock up on all your crochet essentials here.
4. DIY Crocheted Christmas Trees – Perfect for Babies
If you know someone who loves to create a showstopping Christmas table arrangement, consider giving them a helping hand by crocheting them their very own sweet and cuddly Christmas tree. These also make the perfect gift for new-borns to snuggle up with. Make sure you purchase the best yarn you can find so that it is gentle against their sensitive skin.
5. Luxury Gift Hampers – Perfect for Everyone
For those that are prone to buying expensive gift boxes and hampers for relatives that you don’t know what to buy for, you can save a small fortune by making your own. All you need is a few empty gift baskets or boxes, some shredded tissue paper, and your chosen items. In terms of hamper themes, the sky is the limit. You could create a boozy box for a friend, a luxurious bath, soak hamper for your mum or even a crocheting box for fellow crafters like yourself.
